(1/2) Out running this morning on a new route and a lady runs past me. Despite only passing, when I get home automatically tags her in my run. If I click on her face it shows her full name, picture and a map of her running route (which effectively shows where she lives)

(2/2) This is despite the fact that I don't follow her and she doesn't share her activity publicly. So basically if someone sees a woman running alone there's an app they can go to see her name, picture and address 🤯

UPDATE: points out this is a separate privacy setting from when you change who can see your activities - all settings default to 'Everyone' but this feature will only be disabled if you turn off 'Flyby'

Looking at the wording on the Flyby privacy setting, it's absolutely not clear that other people will be able to see your running route on a map (and all the info that comes along with that)

This is what happens when the people making these decisions aren't people who have to worry about harassment

Worth remembering that someone knowing where you live isn't the only risk, it's not even the biggest risk. It's also knowing the route, knowing where you go that's dark or secluded and at what time, and that it is probably a regular routine

***UPDATE*** have now changed this setting to default to private - for anyone who had it set to 'Everyone' it is now set to private until you choose to enable it. Thank you for listening and taking this seriously Strava!

Did you "only pass" her or did you inadvertently share a broader route (at different times)?

We were ran along the same road for maybe 20% of the route
